Open Philanthropy recommended two grants totaling £1,298,023 ($1,586,224 at the time of conversion) to the Future of Humanity Institute to hire future scholars to its Research Scholars Programme. FHI is a multidisciplinary research institute working on global catastrophic risks at the University of Oxford.

This grant follows our July 2018 support. While we see the basic pros and cons of this support similarly to what we’ve presented in past writeups on the matter, our ultimate grant figure was set by the aggregated judgments of our committee reviewing the grant proposal.
